34016 - Bodmin

Post by 35005CP on Fri Jun 05, 2009 6:44 am

Hi all,

Does anyone have any good thoughts or timings on this loco - I've fired to her a couple of times in preservation on the MHR and has been faultless...

Even though she was a steam tester - This buggered her cylinders, these had been rebored and set up properly in preservation and on the mainline....

Thanks

Andy

Ive got to say IMHO, that this Locomotive, would have been way down in my estimation, to preserve; and restore

As you quite rightly say Admin, she was a Steam Tester at Eastleigh Works, and on return to the Main Line, her beats were well out. IMHO; that will never be cured.

What do other members think?

I have fired to 34016 Bodmin on a couple of occasions and out of the 2 between 34007 and 34016 - 34016 will always win hands down - An easy steamer and she doesn't punish you, unlike the countless time I have had Wadebridge...
Maybe a comparison between the 2 as I have nothing else to compare to on a line such as the MHR.....

Does anyone know what the plans are for 34016 and alike for the future? With Bury so busy and obviously for the plans for her to go there (I would imagine) She must surely be down the restoration queue with the MN's waiting to be restored?

Does anyone have any info? As to whether she is going to go to Bury and be restored to mainline status and what the time for Overhaul is going to be?

Further to my previous post, does anyone have any further information and does anyone know if they are intending to send her Mainline again?
Thanks
Andy

Hi All,
I know that 34016 has now moved from the Midhants, but any news or pictures anywhere of plans or how she is progressing?
Thanks
Andy

Hi all,

I understand that some parts have been used from 34016 for 35018? Does anyone know what parts have been used please?

Thanks

Andy
